Huntsville, Ala. - The University of Alabama in Huntsville Department of Athletics announced on Wednesday the hiring of Keith Giboney to be the program’s next head volleyball coach.

Giboney mentored 43 All-GSC players during his time in Searcy, Ark., and he coached the GSC West Division Player of the Year in 2004, 2008 and 2009.
Under Giboney’s direction, Harding made it to 13 straight GSC tournaments and also made it to the NCAA tournament a total of four times. From 2002 through 2007, Harding won six straight regular season division titles.
His coaching career began back in 1993 at Lubbock Christian High School and within four years of being there, he guided the program to three state championships and amassed a 110-25 record. In 1997, Giboney became the head coach at Dallas Chrisitian, where in two seasons he went 60-18 and won a fourth state title. Giboney was twice named Texas All-Star coach.
